Thiago Motta admits Atletico Madrid let themselves down in yesterday's 1-1 draw with Real Murcia.

The former Barcelona midfielder said: "This is not what we wanted, it was called on us to win and it was not possible. In the end they have obtained what they wanted, the draw. It is a quite difficult field to play football.

"Atletico needs the ball to play well and we have not had it.

"We must aspire to do more, and now we must talk about it and correct our errors. Our morale won't drop, the season begins now and this slip will remain here in Murcia."
